Benevolence becomes complete and perfect through three things: Hastening in it, regarding it insignificant, and doing it secretly.

There are four things whose effect are great even if they may be little: Fire, hostility, poverty, and illness.

Procrastinating Tawbah (repentance) is a delusion. Neglecting one’s duties of servanthood towards Allâh and believing to have excuses for not performing the duties are reasons of destruction. Persisting in sins and not being punished instantly proves that Allâh Ta‘âlâ gives him time. One who is given such time and thus thinking he is secure from punishment is at an evident loss.

If a person does not feel ashamed when he commits an offense, if he does not give up his wrong deeds despite his old age and if his fear of Allâh Ta‘âlâ is merely a lip service, then there is no good in that person.

Allâh Subhânahû attributed people to their fathers in this world so that people can know them. As for the Âkhirah (hereafter), everybody will be known by their deeds in order to reap the outcome of their deeds.

Whomever Allâh Jalla Jalâluhû blesses with some favours, let him share them with his family. If he does not do that, they might be taken away from him.

Three things elevate the honour of a Muslim: Pardoning the one who oppresses him, giving to those who deprive him, and establishing ties with one’s relatives when they sever it.

Miserliness denotes having evil assumptions about Allâh Subhânahû providing provisions (Rizq) for him.

When a mature believer gets angry, his anger does not prevent him from (observing) justice. And when he is pleased with something, his pleasure does not lead him astray.

When a Mu’min (believer) makes his fellow Muslim brothers happy, Allâh Ta‘âlâ creates an angel out of that group’s happiness. That angel engages himself with Hamd (praising Allâh) and Tasbîh (glorifying Allâh). When that Mu’min dies and is put in his coffin, the angel comes to him and says: “I will accompany you today, I will not leave you on your own. I will help you answer the questions in the grave. I will be with you whenever you face hardship on the Day of Qiyâmah. I will intercede on your behalf on the court of your Rabb and show you your station in Jannah too.
